So er yes I actually went out with a real camera (Canon 7d digital camera) rather than my Samsung S3 Phone and Instagram  and took some pictures. its been a while but it was fun all the same. I went over to the island of Ynys Mon in Wales and the Britannia bridge that carries the A55. The main trunk road to Ireland from Holyhead. I also got inspired by rocks there was a church in the middle of the irish sea near aberffraw called St Cwyfan Church . You can get to it at low tide.

 

I got some pictures of the stone lions that you can’t see from the road after the old Thomas Telford railway tunnel was burnt down in the 1970s and they put the new road on top. I love the steel structure and the rivets and bolts holding the bridge up

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
